in social security and medicare. cuts in social security an medicare. i would simply say to them, look at where we are. look at where we are. social security and medicare are both cash negative today. the trustees of medicare say that medicare will go broke in eight years. social security will take somewhat longer. but both are on a path to insolvency if we fail to act. mr. president, it hasn't just been from the more liberal side of the spectrum that the criticism has come. also on the right. "the wall street journal," ran this editorial calling the debt reduction commission or the deficit commission a trap. they say it is a trap that will lead to higher taxes, to more revenue. so on the left and the right we have those complaining that if you move forward to deal with the debt, you're going to make reductions in programs and you're goi i think that's undeniably the case. if you're going to deal with this debt threat, we are going to have to make changes in the spending prowewewewewe are goine changes in the revenue base of the country. i would suggest for those who are concerned abou

upfront? all the other states lose medicare vantage within five years, but florida is to keep it? why? these have to be dropped. with all respect to senator reid who says he cannot pass health care without these deals, then he is going nowhere. house members are disappointed, like the american people. there are two things to watch. legislation being made and sausage. -- there are two things you do not want to watch. this should stand on its merit. michigan was one of the first it's economically. -- one of worst states economically. let's pass this on policy. i always thought they would do a trigger. no greater than the rate of inflation, if it goes, trigger a public option. that is one when they talk about a compromise. that makes sense. this the one this side of the room. -- let's go to this side of the room. [inaudible] but it could all be for naught. congress starts january 2011 and said they disagree with health care. they could get rid of it. every congress has a right to review it. congress has been talking about this since teddy roosevelt first proposed a 100 years ago. for us
for taking my call. the so-called reduction in medicare that the republicans more or less talk about on a regular basis is really -- is it information or misinformation about the program, either the senate or the house of representatives bill, are they going to really reduce the amount of money into medicare to pay for this plan? and also the public option, why is it that they are not wanting to really fight for the public option? it seems to me that that would be a good way to go and if people are purchasing insurance, you know, they're responsible for reading the policy and knowing what coverage they have and, you know, it's just like taking out a loan. if you don't read the fine print and you sign on the dotted line, you're responsible. because it's a contract. andity think the republicans are just fear mongering and trying to kill the bill simply because of the input of the lobbyists from the insurance, you know, the big corporations. host: thanks for your call. guest: a comment on the medicare question briefly. the pieces in the health legislation that would reduce costs under m
social security and medicare and medicaid, probably the two main things basically bleeding us dry. but basically it is suicide to talk about those two. so we are going to have to go with, i guess, the spending cuts that he suggested. that is basically all i have to say. host: little rock, arkansas. paul on the republican line. caller: the morning, greta. i would like the president to talk about jobs and the economy. and during the campaign he promised to save millions of jobs. also promised to create millions of dollars. since he has been president he has created a huge deficit, sent $100 million to haiti, and there are many people right here in america who are unemployed, people who need jobs, and i feel that he should concentrate on taking care of the american people first. host: that is the headline in "the wall street journal" and "the new york times." it says -- host: new york city, luis, independent line. the trustee secretary will be testifying about what he knew about aig and that will be at 10:00 a.m. eastern time live on c-span3. also testifying as former treasury secret

. these are some of the hearings we have had. you're going to hear about the medicare advantage. we did nursing home standards and passed the law 25 years ago and have never had a hearing on that. long-term care insurance, are consumers protected? june 16th, termination of individual health insurance policies. if you are buying an individual family policy eiffel application, right? we had two hearings on this. when you fill up the insurance policy, most companies have about 1400 different codes. you go to the local drugstore in the fill up the prescription. if you trigger a code that will review your policy because with that code triggered might be very expensive medical treatment might be facing in the future and therefore they will jump you -- dump you. for instance, one family as they were filling out the form the told him to put out he was 180 pounds but he was really 250 pounds. they dumped him and said he lied on his application. when it terminated from your health insurance policy, who do you appeal to? the company that just the end user you do not have a repeal rights. -- the company th
. it will cost us more? >> the center for medicare services says it will cost .6%, almost 1% more. so democrats are saying, hey, this is pretty good. only 1% increase. we're having tremendous increases every year. although this past year we had the lowest increase in a long time. a little over 4% based on the recession. however, that's not the real story. the real story in that report also says that doctors and hospitals will find it unprofitable, perhaps, to take medicare and may, in fact, move away from accepting medicare patients. >> that's the real take away in that report. >> then if -- if the pool of doctors who take medicare patients shrinks, does that lead to what some have referred to as rationing simply because there will be fewer to pick from? >> absolutely. in an alcoholic since, rationing and leads to increased prices for health consumers based on demand, and what it's going to lead to is we have now medicare increases of about 8% a year historically. the government is saying with this plan, we're going to cut medicare a half trillion dollars. can that really be done based upon the
insurance, lower your costs, all the insurance reforms, we're going to lower the cost of medicare and medicaid and it won't cost anybody anything. that's great politics. it's just not true. so, there's got to be some test of realism in any of these proposals, mine included. i've got to hold myself accountable. i guarantee the american people will hold themselves -- will hold me accountable if what i'm selling doesn't actually deliver. >> mr. president, point of clarification, what's in the better solutions book are all the legislative proposals -- >> no, i understand that, i've actually read your bills. >>-- throughout 2009. >> i understand. >> so, rest assured, the summary document that you received is backed up by precisely the kind of detailed legislation that speaker pelosi and your administration has been busy ignoring for 12 months. >> mike. wait. hold on a second -- no, no, no, no, no, no, no. hold on a second. guys, you know, mike, i've read your legislation. i mean, i take a look at this stuff. and the good ideas, we take. but here's -- here's the thing -- here's the thin
, medicare and otherwise, being asked to pay for that additional -- setting aside something that unionized workers will not have to face for an additional five years? >> i think some of the revenue questions are obviously part of the discussions that are ongoing. the president has made a commitment that he will keep to ensure that this legislation is fully paid for. again, it is something that is a little different that is going on in washington these days. this is a proposal that will be scored and it will be rendered a judgment as to the fact that the president will pay for every ççdime in this bill. the compensated for in taxes for additional medicare savings? >> again, i think some of the discussions are ongoing. >> on healthcare, the last month or six weeks you all have proceeded with no republican support, no republican negotiations as far as anyone can tell, 60-40 votes. and it looked like you were on the glide path to passing it in the senate's with democratic- only boats. you now faced the prospect in çmassachusettsç of possibly needing a republican vote. is there some reg

done more with cost containment or fixing medicare which is already broken instead of just expanding it. there's something in between doing nothing and just doing this bill, isn't there? >> of course, there's always something in between. and i think that the president spent a good deal of time trying to find a bipartisan solution, dealing with senator collins, senator grassley. come on, he spent the whole summer. i mean, i was pulling my hair out by the end of july or the beginning of august that they were still in this kind of scrum with the republican members on the finance committee. >> do you remember hanging on every word grassley said, every word snowe said? >> not really. >> collins? >> not really. >> a long time ago. >> so i think they tried. and at the end of the day, the republicans made a decision that they were just going to be at opposition and hoped that as rush limbaugh famously said, that the president would fail. >> oh, okay. all right. >> that's their political strategy. >> let me ask you -- well, because they could honestly believe that some of these things aren't the
unusual because it addresses so little spending, nondiscretionary spending, medicare, medication and social security and defense off the table on the freeze. it is a start and evan bayh from indiana is encouraged by that. senator, good to have you, thanks for coming. >> good to be with you, neil. >> this start, a lot of folks in the other party have said it's not enough of one. in fact it's a joke. the savings we're talking about over ten years, $250 billion, might seem like a lot but in the scheme of spending, closing in on $20 trillion, chump change. what do you say? >> well, i think you've got to have merit to both arguments. it's a significant start and neil you know that by the fact the president is roundly criticized by some segments to want more spending and debt. $250 billion is a important down payment but we need more. there are other parts of the budget this does not touch. that's why which tried to have a long-term commission to wrestle with those problems but the fact the president is willing to step up and freeze this rapidly growing parts of the boing and it's back
reform as a way to trim medicare spending to fund coverage expansion a lot of these voters were very suspicious of this. you see them getting mobilized in a way that's very unpredictable at the time. i think this was the political mistake. rather than looking to conservative policy elites in the capital, barack obama should have looked to who were those older white republican voters who didn't necessarily love bush, who were willing to give him a chance but who had a very different set of concerns from again those inside the belt way policy wons. i think not getting that visceral sense of concern that particularly a lot of older voters who didn't vote for him in the 2008 election or who stayed home, et cetera that was a big mistake he's still paying for and has exacted some costs in the form of those from the left being disillusioned as well as those on the right. it's a much more confusing landscape. >> i think there's a lot to that. i also think that something that the president said in his inaugural address that hasn't been widely quoted but i thought was extraordinarily shrewd, h
along the party line on cap and trade and obama care and higher taxes and cutting medicare. they are going to say no to does things. i think when the politicking time comes they are going to say i don't think i want to invite barack obama to come into my district, he does not make things happen. >> sean: amazing turn around one year ago think of where we were in the country. there's been talk about how this impacts health care. nancy pelosi said earlier today that health care will go for. other congressmen says it does not. then there's talk about she nan agains that they won't seat brown right away if he has the victory tonight if they play any shenanigans what does that do to the mood of the electorate, which is clearly pretty angry and pretty anti-the democrats' agenda? >> i would be surprised, the democrats have been talking what they would do if scott brown became elected how they would get their health care through despite the will of the people. if they play the kind of she nan -- shenanigans you described it will show the arrogance which has lead to brown's victory
senator ben nelson? apparently he is asking for money for his state that would be used for medicare and he's asking not to take it anymore? guest: this was done essentially to get senator nelson's vote. it was to expand federal funding for medicare in nebraska. some said great, but what about our state? senator nelson took a lot of heat for this. he's a conservative leaning democrat in a strongly republican state. he's gone around the state and done all kinds of ads to explain his position, and finally he said to senator reed, let's take this off the table. he said let's give it to all states or take it out entirely. host: wlats going on in massachusetts -- with what's going on in massachusetts, how long until he could be sworn into the senate? guest: this is a matter of contention. you haveçó democratic-leaning officials in massachusetts saying it may take two weeks to officially process the win. thers÷ tradition in the senate it is not disputed, you get that person in there as quickly as possible. i can bet republicans would be crying foul if democrats tried to string this out and lea
